Lunchbox Treats: A List
We had a silent contest in the classroom during my elementary days. The rules were unspoken, but it was enforced, nonetheless. Whoever had the best packed lunch will be affectionately remembered by the teacher and the rest of the class for the day.
Each week, my classmates and I one-upped each other in bringing the best snack. We pressured our mothers to buy all the imported junk food and snacks in the Landmark supermarket so that we can show off to our classmates the following Monday and pray that Teacher will give us a special mention because of our Doritos (which was rare in the Philippines in the early nineties).
The theory in packed lunches goes: if the foods in your lunchbox are unhealthy, the greater the chances of it being eaten.
Kidswereus made a list of the snacks that made us popular with our classmates and teacher.
–Granny Goose Tortillos
–Chocolait (It’s chocolate milk but having this as a snack was astatus symbol )
